England far from flawless but victorious to start World Cup

Wilmar Roldan red card Ecuador v Peru

England captain Harry Kane has made a disgusting revelation about what his team endured in their last-gasp win against Tunisia at the World Cup. Low expectations for this year's overhauled team were dispelled early in Russian Federation when Kane reacted quickly to score after John Stones' header was saved.

England felt they could have had two penalties as Kane was man-handled in the box by the Tunisian defenders, with the Tottenham striker suggesting his late victor was just reward after a dubious refereeing performance.

It was down to captain Kane to swing the game back in their favour with minutes to go, reacting fastest to Harry Maguire's flick-on to nod home the victor at the far post.

He said: "Credit to the lads, we kept going". It was after this moment that England started to look sloppy at the back with Tunisia creating a few more chances after this. We got what we deserve in the end.

"In the back of our minds, we thought that it could be one of those days where it doesn't go our way", Kane admitted after the match.

The Spurs striker admitted there had been some nerves present beforehand in the camp, but was full of praise for the team.

Two-goal hero Kane was proud of the England players for persevering, and battling through refereeing decisions which he felt went against his side. We've done a lot of work on the training field and playing last we have seen a lot of games, so we've all been itching to play and it was tough.

However, the former England global believes that Kane should not be labelled as a world class player just yet.




"It's a massive boost, a massive bonus, we kept going".

Derby County manager and former England star Frank Lampard said: "We would have won this game before half-time".

Kieran Trippier and Ashley Young failed with free-kicks as England displayed a worrying lack of composure in front of goal. It was Cheek's persistence on the left side of midfield that led to the corner kick which resulted in the winning goal.

England will face Panama next at the Nizhny Novgorod Stadium on Sunday.

England dominated the entire match with their attacking display yet for nearly the entire match, they had just one goal to show.

England came to Russian Federation determined to put behind them the disappointment of the 2014 World Cup in Brazil when they failed to win a game and went out at the first hurdle. "There will always be things we can get better at".

On the biggest stage of all, it had taken him just 11 minutes to open his account as England swept forward in waves.
